Cruz: Kerry Had ‘Less-Than-Vigorous Defense’ Of U.S. National Security

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/cruz-kerry-had-less-than-vigorous-defense-of

The Senate on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) as the nation's next secretary of state. Newly elected Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was one of three Senators who cast his vote against confirmation. Cruz explained his opposition in a statement shortly after:

"I was compelled to vote no on Senator Kerry's nomination because of his longstanding less-than-vigorous defense of U.S. national security issues and, in particular, his long record of supporting treaties and international tribunals that have undermined U.S. sovereignty," he said. "Now that he has been confirmed, I look forward to working with him in the years to come, hopefully, to protect our interests and preserve U.S. sovereignty."

1. Uh, Pretender pretending be a Senator. ..

 

I think Kerry's experience as a Senator and a diplomat has given Kerry more than enough credibility when it comes to understanding national security. He has been overseas doing diplomat work when Cruz was looking through dirty pictures as a boy. Including being in combat in Vietnam War.

5. For a guy who has a lot of university degree sheepskin, he is less-than-smart.

I am a less-than-ardent fan of Canada Cruz.

6. Ted Cruz again has proven he is not up to the task of being in the Senate. TeaBagger wrong

He does not know the Constitution by some of his statements even though he should by his education. You can't help dumb here, he is making a name for himself and it is not good. My desire is to have him a one time Senator.
